Inches of snow expected around southeast Michigan Monday

All of southeast Michigan will be getting some snow today, but depending on where you live you'll see more than others. 

If you draw a line from about Ann Arbor diagonal up to Port Huron, that's about where the divider will be for the big vs. small snow totals. Anyone west of that line could see up to 6 inches of snow, and anyone east won't see more than 2 inches. Cities more north like Flint and Saginaw could see more than 6 inches. 

But Monday morning for most started with some rain, maybe a rain/snow mix, again, depending on where you're at. 

Around 9 a.m. the rain/snow mix will move to the southeast. Detroit and Port Huron will still just be seeing rain until mid to late morning. By noon, all of southeast Michigan will be seeing snow. 

The snow is going to fade quickly, though, and will taper off by mid afternoon. 

Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for norther counties: Lapeer, Saginaw, Sanilac, etc. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair and Washtenaw counties. Those all end at 3 p.m.

Temps will be in the mid 30s today but will feel much colder as the wind will also be blowing out there. Expect low visibility on the roads, too, when it's snowing. 

Much of the Midwest is getting hit by this snowstorm. Hundreds of flights have been grounded and major highways are closed, too, bring a huge travel snarl to the end of Thanksgiving weekend. The Chicago Department of Aviation reported early Monday that average departure delays at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport are 77 minutes, and the flight-tracking website FlightAware reported that more than 350 flights headed to or from the U.S. were canceled.

Parts of southeastern Wisconsin, just north of Chicago, suffered a glancing blow from the storm, with about 9 inches (23 centimeters) of blowing and drifting snow.

Forecasters predict more than a foot of snow is likely in southeast Nebraska, northeast Kansas, northwest Missouri and southwest Iowa.
